Futuron Co. and LegoSpacy Inc. has a joint venture. They will co-create the ATV to be used in the upcoming Mars expedition. Futuron will be the lead agency in this program.
About this creation

Side view. The chassis used was from a spare Mk III hence the similarities.

Futuron retained the adjustment made by LegoSpacy in the ATV's underside.

The holding clamps assembly were redesigned to fit tightly around the commpod's entrance.

Our LegoSpacy consultant himself. Say hi to the camera Mr. Gennaro!

This is where Futuron and LegoSpacy part ways in design. The prototype is designed for high-maneuverability in difficult terrain that will be encountered in Mars. Swerving right plus medium to high boost, depending on need.

Swerving left. Although the clamps have to lock when the commpod is attached for the passenger's safety.

The communication gear detached for inspections. Under license to LegoSpacy of course.

Pod has ample headroom. Thank you Mr. Gennaro. He's quite photogenic don't you think?

ATV controls. Futuron used available LegoSpacy parts that are analogous to their own specifications. The roll-out version will feature typical Futuron controls, i.e., levers and "gamepads" in lieu of joystick and steering wheel.

Another view of the cockpit. Futuron will have a closed cockpit as opposed to LegoSpacy's opentype version.

Quoting Daz Hoo You should really try to use more natural light or many lamps instead of using the flash of your camera, because the glare prevents us from seeing any details of your creations, especially on close-ups. You should also try to harmonize the colors a little better, as the white on the pods clashes with the blue IMHO.
Thanks Daz! Ok, as a soon as I get my set-up organized.
